The mountain group of the Sassolungo between the Val Gardena and the Alpe di Siusi area is arranged in a mountain range that opens in a north-westerly direction and has, so to speak, an “inner courtyard”. It was created around 230 million years ago. The “stone city” in the direction of the Sella Pass, which is characterized by its rich flora and fauna, is known here.The massif is made up of the following mountains, called clockwise: Langkofel (3,181 m asl), Langkofeleck (south-east summit of the Langkofel), Fünffingerspitze (2,996 m asl), Grohmannspitze (3,126 m asl), Innerkoflerturm (3,081 m above sea level), Zahnkofel and Plattkofel (2,969 m above sea level). The Langkofel and Plattkofel are particularly suitable for via ferrata and mountain tours and can also be circled. The highest point in the Sassolungo Group is the Sassolungo, which gives it its name, at 3,181 m above sea level.It is recommended to cross from the Sellajochhaus. Then it goes over the Langkofelscharte, Langkofelhütte, Murmeltier Hütte and the Jendertal to St. Christina in Val Gardena. Despite the slight difference in altitude, this hike is demanding but rewarding!
